Statistical Image Analysis
Period 4, March - May 2017
Chalmers course code TMS016, GU course code MSA300
Swedish course name: Statistisk bildbehandling
(Mathematical Statistics, Chalmers/GU)
Examiner: Mats Rudemo
Aim and contents
Digital image processing and analysis of information in images are
methods that become increasingly important in many technical and
scientific fields, including almost all biological sciences. The aim
of the course is to provide a basic knowledge of how to use
probabilistic and statistical methods for image analysis.
Methods for acquiring, showing, filtering and segmentation of images
are briefly covered in the first part of the course, including methods
for performing quantitative measurements in images.
Core subjects in the course are pattern recognition and spatial
statistics applied to images. In pattern recognition we study methods
for discrimination between classes of objects characterized by
suitably chosen features. Spatial statistical models are used for
describing point patterns, spatial correlation and the shape and
structure of objects in two and three dimensions.
Examples are taken from remote sensing, microscopy, photography,
medical imaging,fingerprint analysis, microarrays, two-dimensional
electrophoresis gels and particle diffusion.
Practical computer work is included, typically using Matlab. An
important part of the course is to carry through a project in a small
group, presenting the results at a seminar and writing a project
The course is given in English.
